Why Non-24 Is a Bull$#!t Diagnosis

Why Non-24 Is a Bull$#!t Diagnosis
A listener of Super Human Radio called the studio to ask about a supplement we talked about on an older show. I learned during the conversation that he lost his sight as a young boy. I thought to ask him a question that has occupied my mind lately. Every time I see the commercial for the pharmaceutical drug called Hetlioz made by Vanda Pharmaceutical. I asked him “have you ever used the drug for non-24?”. He said no but a gal he knows has and she didn’t like it. It made her feel ill and didn’t improve her sleep one bit. I have no idea what it’s like to be blind so I asked him “why not just use melatonin?” He began to laugh and said that’s what he does. Non-24 is a bull$#!t diagnosis. Not because it doesn't exists. Because it doesn't require a pharmaceutical drug to treat it! A...

SSRI Exposure During Pregnancy Leads To Brain Abnormalities In Newborns

SSRI Exposure During Pregnancy Leads To Brain Abnormalities In Newborns
A new study shows that fetuses exposed to their mother’s SSRI’s have brain abnormalities. SSRI's are a class of antidepressant that many physicians prescribe today. We are so damn cavalier and reckless with the use of pharmaceutical drugs today. Physicians regularly tell pregnant mothers “don’t stop taking your SSRI” but fail to tell them this … “According a new study, fetal exposure to commonly used SRI drugs may affect brain activity in newborns. The researchers suggest that the effects of drugs on fetal brain function should be assessed more carefully, Indications for preventive medication should be critically evaluated, and non-pharmacological interventions should be the first-line treatment for depression and anxiety during pregnancy.” Stop poisoning your children. Don’t look to the FDA to protect you from the pharmaceutical companies.. They’re part of the problem.

Probiotic Protects Children Against Common Cold

Probiotic Protects Children Against Common Cold
Short and sweet. Two groups of children in daycare environments. One received a fermented milk product twice a day for 3 months. The other received a control drink. 300 children in the fermented milk group. A target probiotic of the Lactobacillus genus was observed for its possible actions in preventing respiratory and gastro-intestinal common infectious diseases. Of the two groups, controls and fermented milk drinkers, the only significant difference was the fermented dairy drinkers appeared to be resistant to the common cold - rhinopharyngitis. The authors concluded “Although no other significant differences were shown between the fermented milk and control product groups in this study, lower incidence of rhinopharyngitis may indicate a beneficial effect of this fermented milk product.” So probiotics and fermented dairy products may be living up to the task of preventing the common cold in children in a daycare setting so all the parents out there.   Source: ...

How Type I Diabetes Starts in Our Guts

How Type I Diabetes Starts in Our Guts
A new study by an international team of scientists from Germany and the US (Endesfelder. 2016 | click here to read the study) appears to finally provide a mechanistic explanation for the previously postulated and epidemiologically observed link between a messed up gastrointestinal microbiome and the development of anti-islet cell autoimmunity (Brown. 2011; Giongo. 2011), i.e. the self-destruction of your pancreas. Here's what the scientists did Even though it is long-standing knowledge that "the development of anti-islet cell autoimmunity precedes clinical type 1 diabetes" and that the first signs of this rapidly accelerating process occur "very early in life," (Endesfelder. 2016) a mechanism to explain between the beginning self-destruction of the pancreas and the composition of the gut microbiome has yet been absent. To elucidate this mechanism, Endesfelder et al. developed a new approach to the analysis of the microbiome on an aggregation level between a single microbial taxon and classical...

A Critical-Thinker's Look At The Estrogenic Effects Of Soy

A Critical-Thinker's Look At The Estrogenic Effects Of Soy
Since their recognition as part of some plant foods like soy and flax seeds phytoestrogens have been called into question for their potential to mimic the effects of real estrogens. Phytoestrogens in plants are known as isoflavones. In some cases this is a critical question. Take for instance a woman who is on estrogen blockade therapy for an estrogen dependent breast cancer. Estrogen can stimulate the progression of this and other forms of cancer and as such ridding the body of all estrogen is key to survival. Food manufacturers have said that phytoestrogens don’t convey the same biological effects as real estrogen citing a weaker affinity to the estrogen receptor and strength of estrogenicity. But then industry funded research shows that these isoflavones may protect against osteoporosis, menopausal symptoms, diabetes and obesity.. Hmmm just like real estrogen replacement therapy.  Let’s face it, they don’t want women to stop drinking soy milk!...
